Chapter 6 - Love Me in the Dark



Her eyes filled with horror. What was she thinking? That I would put someone's life in my hands for her?

"I haven't killed anyone, and I won't have his blood on my hands if that's what you're concerned about. Getting him out of your life, that's what I meant to say." My brother already made a point not to help me with River's case, but hiring people to do the job could come in handy with the right price. "I'm surprised that despite what he did to you, you're still worried about him."

"I just don't want you to do something terrible for my sake." In due time, baby.

"Don't worry, my brother and I know a few people. And we won't be breaking any laws, River."

"He must have been cursing me right now." That reminded me of Kai's words. Is babysitting your new job now?

My brow raised. "Kai? We just fought when you came out of the house."

"I'm sorry." She walked towards my desk and checked what was in the bag one by one. "Oh, my god. These may have cost you fortunes." She stared at me for a few moments, gratified. "You don't have to buy me a phone and a new laptop."

"Stop apologizing, River. We both made mistakes. And how do you exactly want me to contact you while I'm in the city? Besides, I'll just deduct them from your paycheck," I half-jokingly said the last part. It would be fun to have someone to irk around other than my sister. I was starting to enjoy this little awkward reunion and a game we had, and we even barely started.

"Oh?" Her eyes grew big again, brightened, and she looked so pretty when she was blushing. I wondered how pretty she would be as she was succumbing to her orgasm beneath me.



"What?" I asked back.

"You swore."

"Did I?" I shook my head. "Never mind. Take your things up. I have work to do." I tossed the notes for her to start working on my schedules, personal meetings, and lists of the platforms where I could investments a small fraction of money with zero negotiation.

"Do you always work?" Her curiosity was genuine.

"The reason why I did not hire an assistant is that I didn't want a distraction. I can manage just right alone." Though, I have one huge reason that I'd rather keep it to myself.

Her face fell. "Don't worry, and I know my job is just temporary. I'm outta here before you even realize." You have no idea that I want to fire you right now, but I have my reasons why I have to keep you an arm's length, baby.

"Anything Else? Coffee, tea? I can do laundry for you, too." Something glinted in her eyes.

I rolled my eyes. "You're not my maid, River." You're mine to pleasure, not to do my fucking laundry. I groaned. Jesus, what's wrong with me?

"It's alright. I suppose I can use your kitchen?" She beamed at me, and I was sure as hell I was smiling right back at her. She would look perfect in my kitchen, but I would not get that through my thick skull. Besides, her stay would not be permanent, after all.


"Don't break anything. I get it the first time," she just repeated my words. Fucking great.

"That's not what I was about to say. Just don't burn the entire house down."

"I won't. Dinner is on me." She raised the bags. "Thanks for this." That was it, she walked to the door, swaying her hips and her ass that I would love a squeeze.

Fuck me. I released a deep sigh once River locked the door behind her. I threw my head back and stared at the ceiling. I never realized how exhausted I was as I tried to pull myself together when she was around. And this hadn't been even a day.
